groups. This provides us a reference base for evaluation of the further social learning process. The factors of motivations included are mainly attitudinal factors and external conditions. Attitudinal factors ranged from negative to moderate to positive, depending on the type of measure farmers are discussing. Economic factors and also legislation constraints were mentioned as important external conditions in their decision making. Literature and interview analysis leads to a proposal of a methodology to detect social learning aspects by farmers once they have used the Monitoring Tool for Integrated Farm Sustainability (MOTIFS) in discussion groups during one year. This implies a second-step interviewing of the farmers to explore whether the motivations for change mentioned by the farmers have changed and whether this change moves in the direction of more sustainability.
